More details about my old truck
My name is Garrett Hestla
and I have a 1959 Chevrolet Suburban. Kelly, my wife, and I purchased it in April 2004.
This is a picture of the '59 with me and my Dad.
We needed a people hauler
that could also be a catering vehicle for Kelly. The Town and Country was doing
more than its share and our other car is a two-seater convertible. Not wanting
the same ole thing everybody else was driving, we began to search the web for

I have an entire web
site devoted to the 1959 Suburban.
